Estimation of stress perception using mobile devices and emotional stability in students while driving in a simulator

  • The purpose of this paper is to examine the effects of perceived stress on traffic and road safety. One of the leading causes of stress among drivers is the feeling of having a lack of control during the driving process. Stress can result in more traffic accidents, an increase in driver errors, and an increase in traffic violations. To study this phenomenon, the Stress Perceived Questionnaire (PSQ) was used to evaluate the perceived stress while driving in a simulation. The study was conducted with participants from Germany, and they were grouped into different categories based on their emotional stability. Each participant was monitored using wearable devices that measured their instantaneous heart rate (HR). The preference for wearable devices was due to their non-intrusive and portable nature. The results of this study provide an overview of how stress can affect traffic and road safety, which can be used for future research or to implement strategies to reduce road accidents and promote traffic safety.
